Santa Claus made an early appearance to Galt, visiting with hundreds of local children and their families.

Galt Parks and Recreation Department hosted Breakfast with Santa on Saturday, Dec. 11 at the Chabolla Community Center.

Besides being able to chat with the jolly ol’ elf, children decorated Christmas cookies, played games and colored in coloring books, all while eating a tasty breakfast.

The event sold out fast, even after staff added extra tables to accommodate more guests.
